CBD Chocolate Chip Cookies

CBD Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday was my wife and daughter’s birthday (yep, baby was born on Mommy’s birthday!) and with every birthday comes the time to reflect on the past year. And man, we’ve experienced a lot! Our tiny munchkin grew into an energetic, verbal, challenging, sweet, goofy little person; my wife received her graduate degree and accepted her first professional doctoral position; We started planning our move to the coast of Maine; I cooked and baked more recipes than I knew was possible in one year; …and the legalization of marijuana really started to make its presence everywhere.

Hokay so that last one isn’t necessarily a milestone we celebrated this year but you have to admit that progression, especially in today’s political landscape, is worth a few cheers. But what this new development DID bring me was a new discovery: CBD! And naturally I had to find a way to bake with it. Enter: CBD Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m not sure how late to the party I am with CBD but this stuff seems to be sky rocketing into the mainstream these days. Makes complete sense with the legalization of marijuana.

For those who have yet to experience the glory that is CBD, or don’t even know what it is, here is the Readers Digest version: CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over a hundred phytocannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana plants that have been known to have incredible health benefits. THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive compound in the plant that makes you “high”. So when marijuana is injested, you get that high along with the significant therapeutic attributes associated with marijuana use (thanks to CBD). But ingest CBD alone? No high, just incredible health profits! CBD’s potential as a treatment includes (but not limited to):

  • Pain reduction
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Autoimmune diseases 
  • Neurological conditions 
  • Metabolic syndrome (diabetes and obesity)
  • Neuropsychiatric illness (autism, alcoholism, ADHD, PTSD) 
  • Gut disorders 
  • Cardiovascular dysfunction
  • Skin disease (dermatitis, psoriasis, acne)

And another amazing benefit? CBD makes an amazing food additive! You do need to bake with care when using CBD (cant be overheated and adding too much can alter the taste slightly for delicate palates) but if done correctly, you get all of those amazing CBD benefits right there in your tasty dessert! Like these CBD Chocolate Chip Cookies! Talk about treating yourself. One of these cookies put the relax in relaxation, for sure.

If you thought chocolate chip cookies couldn’t get any better, try them with CBD! They’re the ultimate comfort food! Not into the CBD thing? Try this recipe without it!! These cookies are the World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies after all! With or without CBD.

NOTES:
  1. *The amount of CBD you add to the recipe depends on the concentration. I used a concentration of 65mg/mL so I added only a small amount to yield a 10mg CBD/cookie recipe. And while I suggest purchasing a higher concentration CBD oil (lasts longer, you won’t have to add as much oil to the recipe, and you won’t taste the CBD at all) it does get a little pricey. Especially if you’re not sure about the stuff yet, it may not make sense to buy a large amount. But my advice: you’ll want the large amount…Especially after you start to feel the amazing benefits. **If you use a lower concentration of CBD (and therefore have to add more oil to equal 200mg) then subtract a tsp or two of butter so the cookie isn’t too oily.
  1. Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch and salt into a bowl. Set aside.

  2. Using a mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter, CBD (if using) and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients and mix until just combined, 5 to 10 seconds. Fold in chocolate and incorporate them without breaking them. Press plastic wrap against dough and refrigerate for 24 to 36 hours. Dough may be used in batches, and can be refrigerated for up to 72 hours.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Set aside.
  4. Scoop 6 3 1/2-ounce mounds of dough (the size of generous golf balls) onto baking sheet. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake until golden brown but still soft, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer sheet to a wire rack for 10 minutes, then transfer cookies onto another rack to cool completely.
